Archives are created in an organisation to support and manage work, to record why, when, where, in what capacity and by whom what actions were carried out. Every citizen, every family is archiving too. Archiving is preceded by archivalisation: the conscious or unconscious choice (determined by social and cultural factors) to consider something worth archiving. Archivistics is concerned with questions such as what makes a society, an organisation or an individual create and maintain archives the way they do and will a better understanding of the way people create and maintain archives enable us to make statements about an efficient and effective way of creating records? We therefore look at societies, organizations and people that create archives. This, I have named social and cultural archivistics. Its object is the continuum of records creation, processing, and use in an information society which depends of digital longevity.
